As Vermont's Culinary Resort, The Essex Resort & Spa is pleased to offer two restaurants for your dining pleasure.

Amuse offers sophisticated dining in a casual atmosphere. The Essex Resort & Spa's signature restaurant, Amuse is actually two restaurants in one. Savor a Chef's Table experience or order from our Seasonal Menu.

The Tavern provides the best of traditional pub fare. The menu is inspired by the finest local ingredients and also now features locally-grown beef selections, including a wide variety of grass-fed, dry-aged steaks.

The Essex Bakery & Café in the adjacent Essex Shoppes and Cinema is open daily from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. for light breakfast fare, house-made sweet treats, custom-designed celebration cakes, and hot and cold lunch fare.

Cook Academy, our onsite cooking class program, gives you a chance to work with our renowned chefs in the fun atmosphere of our intimate classroom kitchen. Learn how to prepare an Italian feast or spend some time honing your knife skills.
